Augmented Reality (AR) enhances a user's perception of the real world by enhancing it with specific objects that are over-imposed to the real objects. The virtual objects display information that the user may use. The information conveyed by the virtual objects helps a user perform real-world tasks. An augmented reality application is the assembly, maintenance, and repair of complex machinery or common goods. Instructions might be easier to understand if they were available, not as manuals with text and pictures, but rather as 3-D drawings superimposed upon the actual equipment, showing step-by-step the tasks that need to be done and how to do them. These superimposed 3-D drawings can be animated, making the directions even more explicit. This paper describes a proof-of-concept AR application to be used for office printer service operation.
